New Scottish membership option launches today
The SOA is pleased to announce an additional membership option for the 2018 membership year onwards, available from today, alongside the standard British Orienteering membership option. If you join from 1st November, your membership will be valid until 31st December 2018.
*Updated 1st Nov: amended Terms of Membership* Following feedback from clubs and members, we have revised the Terms of Membership to clearly show the differences between the main British membership option and the additional Scottish membership option. (A separate, more detailed document for clubs will be available shortly). We have also added a Privacy Statement. The new Scottish option will be available to existing and new members from 9am on 1st November 2017, and is suited to those who only orienteer locally and who won’t be participating competitively in major events outside of Scotland. There is further info and joining links on the Membership page.

At the foot of this web page, there are links to download the SOA application forms for appointment to Grade C controller, and to upgrade to Grade B controller. (Please use the Word doc in preference to the pdf, if you can.)
Grade B controllers who are interested to upgrade to Grade A should contact the SOA Controllers' Co-ordinator, Rob Hickling, who can advise you on the process for applying to British Orienteering.
Applications are invited for further funding from this year's SOA Club Development Fund. Clubs (or others who have valid projects) are advised that the next deadline for applications for the SOA Club Development Fund is 30th November 2017. Applications to be submitted to Colin Matheson by this date.
